Mōrena Neighbours!

Three retirement villages in Auckland pulled on their dancing shoes and re-created Justin Timberlake's 'Can't Stop the Feeling' music video shot-for-shot.

35 residents, who have an average age of 80, took part in filming the video over a week.

Taking on the role of an international pop star had never crossed 79-year-old Norris Aitken's mind, but he couldn't pass on the opportunity to take a spin round the bowling green in his dancing shoes.

Members of the public have helped to christen Auckland Police's new puppy Etu.

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
